Description

For a full week, I would like to guide you on an ice climbing adventure you will never forget. During this amazing trip, I would like to guide you on the best ice falls in Cogne, in the Alps of Italy.

There are a number of tremendous ice falls throughout Cogne that you can enjoy. In fact, there are over 150 ice falls to choose from. As a result of the variety, this trip is open to people of every skill level, from beginners and intermediate climbers to experts looking for that next challenge. However, regardless of your skill level, you should be in good physical condition.

Based on your skill level, fitness level, weather conditions and your personal preferences we will choose the best ice falls for you.

On the first day of the trip, we will have a short briefing. After that, for the next six days, we will climb different ice falls. And, at night, you will get to relax and rest in comfortable accommodations. Furthermore, the views you will get, from the climbing sites as well as your accommodations, of the Aosta Valley and the surrounding Alps are absolutely stunning!

Are you a fan of ice climbing? Would you like to climb in one of the most popular and thrilling areas in the Alps of Italy? If so, send me a request and join me on this week long ice climbing expedition in Cogne. I have no doubt you’ll have an amazing time.

If you don’t have a week, I also offer a full-day ice climbing trip in Piedmont, Italy, which you can enjoy here.

About the guide

Aspirant IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide
My name is Marco Bigatti, nicknamed “Il Biga”. I was born in Milan, I started climbing in 2006 and since then I have not been able to tear myself away from the vertical world. I turned my passion into a job, becoming Mountain Guide in October 2017, the first mountain guide that lives all the year in Sardinia.
I experience the mountains from a 360-degree point of view. I have practiced all disciplines of climbing in the Alps: rock climbing, alpinism, ice climbing , as well as ski mountaineering.

In addition to alpinism, I love pure sport climbing, seeking out the best climbing sectors throughout the entire Alpine range. But it was in Sardinia that I found a paradise of crags, in particular in the south-west of the island, where you are able to enjoy all types of climbing throughout the year.
I offer climbing day or trips for beginners or experienced climbers who need a guide, multipitch packages for those who want to live an alpine experience, climbing courses, all-inclusive climbing holiday with accommodation in our nice B&B by the sea, guided trekking and mountain biking tours.
